Aluminum Extrusion: Staying Cool with Nitrogen

  • By : PureAire Monitoring Systems
  • Posted on : March 14, 2018

Aluminum is a highly malleable material, which is readily shaped for any number of purposes. The aluminum extrusion process is key to shaping aluminum, and it must be completed in an inert environment to reduce the formation of oxides. Learn why this is important and how facilities can reduce the risks of health hazards in […]

Breathe Safely While Using N2 for Gas Chromatography

  • By : PureAire Monitoring Systems
  • Posted on : January 18, 2018

Gas chromatography is a process used to separate chemical compounds for analysis. The analytical chemistry process is used with gases that won’t decompose when vaporized. Gas chromatography are used in a wide range of industries — everything from forensic science to medical marijuana. While the procedure is highly useful, there are risks when working with nitrogen gas. […]

The Benefits of Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide for Food Processing

  • By : PureAire Monitoring Systems
  • Posted on : October 20, 2017

A blend of gases — carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen — help preserve packaged food by reducing the amount of oxygen inside the sealed package. Gas flushing or Modified Atmosphere Packaging, as the process is called, also reduces the amount of processing that food must undergo. This preserves the quality and nutrient content of meats, […]
